An insider's look at the world of online education from a professor’s viewpoint, written for the benefit of the student. A manual to provide insight on everything from choosing the right school to what professors really think about your work (which you may or may not want to know!) The author also shares with the reader what other educators are thinking, using data from anonymous surveys and gathered from brave souls willing to share their viewpoints, and what deans and department chairs think about everything from accreditation to education quality. The author is often asked by many online students to cover what professors are really asked to assess in the classroom, and she delves into that topic, as well. Many students from online and traditional institutions also shared their insights for this book and are quoted throughout.
